Best Times to Visit the New Mexico MVD

If you must visit an MVD office, timing your trip can make a big difference in how long you’ll have to wait.

  • The first and last days of the month are often very busy.
  • The middle of the week is usually less crowded than Mondays and Fridays.
  • The days immediately before and after national holidays are often crowded.
  • It’s usually better to visit in the morning than at lunch time or in the evening. It’s also important to show up early enough to be able to complete a long transaction (such as taking an exam).
